The risks and benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
All surgeries have risks, and cosmetic surgery is no different. If a person is in good health and the surgeon sees that the surgery and outcome will outweigh the risks associated with the surgery then the surgery will move forward. If a person is in bad health and the surgeon feels that the risks outweigh the benefit then he will not do a cosmetic surgery on that person. Sometimes special care before, during and after can reduce the risks of the surgery. There is always the risk that you will be unhappy with the surgery and will require another surgery to get the desired results.
One must remember that once cosmetic surgery is performed it normally is not possible to change things back to the way they were before surgery. This is a permanent change. So a person needs to be sure they are having cosmetic surgery for themselves and not for someone else. As once this is done there is no going back to the old you. Most people are very happy with the outcome of their surgery. There are others who seem to become addicted to surgery and just continue to get more and more cosmetic procedures. The surgeon needs to be aware of the signs of this and advice a patient that has had more than a few procedures that they seem to be addicted, and try to advise counceling before doing more surgeries on this person.
All surgeons need to be researched and you should feel comfortable and confident in your surgeon, even if it some kind of cosmetic dental treatment you are getting like dentures and have a clear understanding of the procedure that you are about to have done and a reasonable expectation of what the outcome will do for you. The surgeon needs to have a clear understanding of what your wishes are from the surgery so that he can do his best to give you the desired results that you are looking for with your procedure.
